Few trilogies captured the hearts of film fans quite like Christopher Nolan‘s trio of Batman outings. “Batman Begins,” “The Dark Knight,” and “The Dark Knight Rises” have a special place in cinematic history. They helped change the game when it comes to comic book adaptations, allowing more respect for the superhero movie genre. Now, they’re returning to theaters as part of a very special celebration.
Variety is reporting that Nolan’s Batman trilogy is hitting IMAX screens once again. The occasion is the 80th anniversary of the Caped Crusader first appearing in comics. March 30th will see the films shown in Hollywood, Nolan participating in a Q&A as well. Then, April 13th will have them screen in New York City and select other locations.

The screenings will start on March 30 with showings of 2005’s “Batman Begins,” 2008’s “The Dark Knight,” and 2012’s “The Dark Knight Rises” at the Universal Cinema AMC at CityWalk Hollywood. Nolan will make an appearance for a moderated Q&A discussion.
The trilogy will screen on April 13 at AMC Lincoln Square in New York City and AMC Metreon in San Francisco. On April 20, the three movies will be shown at Cinesphere Ontario Place in Toronto, and the Imax Theatre at the Indiana State Museum in Indianapolis.
